AMP Ohio Coal Plant Canceled

AMP Announces Cancellation on Day that Construction was Set to Begin

This is a nice piece of news. Hopefully the folks in Meigs County, OH will have a good holiday this year in celebrating the cancellation of this proposed plant.

Meigs is ranked as one of the most polluted counties in the country as southeast Ohio is already the site of many coal plants. Nov. 25, 2009 was the day construction on the plant was set to begin, but instead it was the day that AMP announced the cancellation.

Control Technology (BACT) limit for carbon dioxide.
